Questions About 1986 Dodge D350’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Dodge? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Dodge tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your D350 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your D350 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my D350 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Dodge D350’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Dodge's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
